For the first time - in one Audible-exclusive collection - it's 13 stories of Jane Yellowrock, the shape-shifting skinwalker and vampire hunter for hire whose business card reads, "Have Stakes - Will Travel". Jane carries inside her the soul of her Beast, the mountain lion's soul which merged with hers when she accidently performed black magic as a child. Now, she and her Beast stalk the dark streets of New Orleans, bringing rogue vampires true death.
In Cat o' Nine Tales, you'll discover how Jane turned into a big cat for the first time; how she and Molly became friends; how Rick LaFleur got his tattoos. You'll go along on some of Jane's early vamp hunts. You'll even hear two short tales through Bruiser's eyes.
Once you experience these stories set in the fantastic world of this New York Times best-selling series, you'll surely agree with Kim Harrison that Jane Yellowrock is "smart, sexy and ruthless".
The stories included in Cat o' Nine Tales are:
"WeSa and the Lumber King"
"The Early Years"
"Signatures of the Dead"
"Blood, Fangs and Going Furry"
"Cajun With Fangs"
"Beneath a Bloody Moon"

"Khristine Hvam is an outstanding narrator.... Hvam brings warmth and realism to Hunter's unusual characters and adds depth to the ambiance of the New Orleans settings. Her performance is splendid as she carefully creates a multitude of male and female characters, human and otherwise. The entire package flies by quickly, and listeners will want more." (AudioFile)
I enjoyed knowing all the back ground.
I am so looking forward to see the series go on and on! I am sure there are more stories and more adventures for Jane. The short stories are just not enough for me. BRING JANE AND BEAST BACK!!!!
This is a great series and hearing stories from some of the main characters is really nice. I learned more about each one and it fills in blanks that makes the overall series more enhanced. a definate must get book!
This is a book of Short stories about Jane Yellowrock and those characters you've learned to love and hate over the series. I've read (listened to every one so far) I love the narrator and the stories. I love the history and lots of truth about how the Europeans destroyed the land of the native Americans
This again I mention is a book of Short Stories by Faith Hunter. When you have over 18 stories you're not going to LOVE every one, but I found something to like about every one. Also Khristine Hvams narration really does it for me in this series. From Jane to Beast she is great.
I've only heard her narrate this series and I'm not complaining.
The fact that it was short stories make it easy to listen for an hour or two and take a break. When it's a whole 12 hour novel........I usually wish I had the day off.
This series seems to get better. I haven't gotten book 7 yet since I'm still listening to this, but I've never been disappointed. Keep up the good work Faith and Khristine.
The last couple stories were filled with great action.
It's a mixture of short stories so it isn't uniform but I expected that. Generally, the stories at the beginning were filled with Jane's backstory. The next few stories were actually excerpts from other novels in the series. I personally found that annoying since I don't want to pay for stories twice. However, the last two stories were related and worthwhile.
Yes, but since it's a collection of short stories, this would of been a nice book to read in portions.
Uneven, but OK.
She reads with a pleasant voice and just enough character to differentiate but not irritate.
I seem to enjoy Faith Hunters novels much more than the short stories. And BTW, why should Jane choose between a dimwit who throws himself on all women and someone who betrays her? She deserves much much better than that.
Yes, just to relive the stories especially the new ones.
I liked getting to know all the characters a little better. I liked hearing in Rick and Bruisers voices.
She is always great, when she does a male speaker you don't think " oh there's a female trying to sound male" you just hear the character.
With all the story stories it wouldn't make a good movie.
Can't wait for Black Arts.
Say something about yourself!
I loved every story that had Bruiser in it. I just LOVE Bruiser.
The story of Ricks tats was interesting, but it didn't make me like him any better, if anything, I'm less of a fan of Rick, and hope he is out of Jane's life forever.
He lacks morals and character.
She is Jane, Bruiser, Leo, etc. She makes the stories
I did, and kinda lost interest listening to the last three or four longer action packed stories. They were somewhat alike (hunting and killing). To me less interesting than the shorter ones at the beginning, which added more depth to the characters.
When reading this I had finished the ninth full length Yellowrock novel (Dark Heir) so the backstories were interesting. I just wish that I had taken my time with this one.
Hvam - great as always.
great series. I'm glad I didn't find this series until so many books were already written so I could binge read them all.
